How Long Do Eggs Last?
If you’re one of those people who throw out raw eggs as soon as the date on the carton corresponds to the calendar date, you’re throwing out perfectly good eggs and perfectly good money. Eggs usually have a “sell by” date not a “use by” date, and, they’re quite tasty and safe to use for a few weeks after their “sell by” date has passed. But… there are some health risks associated with raw eggs, especially when they’re uncooked or undercooked. Please click the appropriate picture for fresh eggs (raw eggs) or hard boiled eggs (cooked eggs) to get more details on shelf life and proper storage for eggs.
Use these links to go straight to the type of eggs you are inquiring about. Most people are un-aware of basic egg facts and toss cartons of perfectly good eggs into the trash because of a printed date that they don’t fully understand.
